CAPTION: Buggies from some of the most conservative Amish, the Swartzentrubers, are parked along side the building. Amish from the most conservative to the most progressive came out to help a benefit dinner for an Amish school.
Filming a gathering where no one wants to be filmed is always sort of tricky, but sometimes the best way to get a “flavor” of an event is to film it. So the other night when I was at the Amish wedding supper being held at the Marshall Community Building outside of Hillsboro, Ohio I filmed a few video snippets of the event. I apologize that I haven’t consolidated these all into one video, just haven’t had the time to do that, so you can pick and choose what you want to watch.
I was trying to sort of go fast through the buffet line so I wasn’t holding anyone else up from enjoying their meal, so the video was a little rushed. But I think you can get a real feel for the food this way.
